    Looks like a nice setup. And lets face it a Mustang can never have to much power.

  2. Hey Stang here is a smaller Strega that will give a guy an adrenaline rush flying between 160 and 180 mph.

    Looks kinda like the Dagu Red a club member gave me this past summer. Need to get it flying at some point.

    I used to have the smaller orange pheonix Strega (V1), no retracts, OS .46AX - It had a fast stall speed (no flaps) and was very fun to fly in the air. It could do a lomcovak at high speeds that was really fun to do. Almost topple end over end! It was flying fast all the time, I remember changing the prop pitch to crank the rpms and forgot to land sooner. I chopped a couple minutes off the flight time. Sucked the fuel down FAST. I had fun with that plane. Changed ownerships five times, no one else ever flew it - too scared of the high stall speed. No idea what ever happened to it.

    Sorry boys but I have not been posting on this thread because I am into building the 20cc profile that Balsa-dust designed.

    I’ve always liked the view from the tail or wingtip. Gives a good perspective and doesn’t obscure the image with the prop wash. Maybe the coolest thing I’ve seen is a 360 view from the inside of a cub.

    So you guys check out this handmade joiners bow saw a buddy made and gave me this evening with both a Japanese and western style blade for it. It's all made out of hard maple except for the tension block that is just southern yellow pine.

  10. The Q 40 in the photo is an all composite pylon racer. At over a 1,000.00 ready to fly the engine is a Nelson 40 no throttle when it comes up on the pipe the engine is turning 28,000 rpm give our take 500 the engine kill consists of a straw with a wire that has a loop in which the fuel feed line runs through. wire on the other end connected to a mini servo. When the throttle stick is pulled to low it pinches off the fuel line to kill the engine then land
